Daytime Discussions
10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Join us for our newest Daytime Discussion. Socialize and grab a cup of tea, coffee or hot cocoa before sitting down and discussing Cokie Roberts' "Founding Mothers". 

While the "fathers" were off founding the country, what were the women doing? Running their husband’s businesses, raising their children plus providing political information and advice. At least that’s what Abigail Adams did for John, starting when he went off to the Continental Congress, which eventually declared the independence of the American colonies from the British. While the men were writing the rebellious words, the women were living the revolution, with the Redcoats on their doorsteps. John’s advice to Abigail as the soldiers approached Braintree: if necessary "fly to the woods with our children." That was it, she was on her own, as she was for most of the next ten years while Adams represented the newly independent nation abroad.

Abigail Adams is the best known of the women who influenced the founders, but there are many more, starting with Martha Washington, who once referred to herself as a “prisoner of state” for the constraints placed on her as the first First Lady. She was the one charged with balancing the demands of a Republic of the "common man" on the one hand, while insisting on some modicum of courtliness and protocol so that the former colonies would be taken seriously by Europe. She also took political heat in the press from the president’s political opponents when he was too popular to criticize.

And there are women like Esther Reed, married to the president of Pennsylvania, who, with Benjamin Franklin’s daughter Sarah Bache, organized a drive to raise money for Washington’s troops at Valley Forge. In 1780 the women raised more than three hundred thousand dollars. Reed wrote a famous patriotic broadside titled The Sentiments of an American Woman, calling on women to wear simpler clothing and hairstyles in order to save money to contribute to the cause. It worked! The women who ran the boarding houses of Philadelphia where the men stayed while writing the now sacred documents of America had their quite considerable say about the affairs of state as well.

This will be the story of some of those women, as learned through their seldom seen letters and diaries, and the letters from the men to them. It will be a story of the beginnings of the nation as viewed from the distaff side.

Pick up your copy at the Circulation Desk after November 25, 2019. Large print and audiobooks available.

Bookworms Book Club
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join our NEW Book Club for kids.  This month we will be reading the first book of the series Geronimo Stilton: Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye (see description below). We will discuss the book, do an activity related to the book, and have a mystery snack! Request your copy of the book at the circulation desk.

Who Is Geronimo Stilton?That's me! I run a newspaper, but my true passion is writing tales of adventure. Here on Mouse Island, my books are all best-sellers! What's that? You've never read one? Well, my books are full of fun. They are whisker-licking good stories, and that's a promise! It all started when my sister, Thea, discovered a mysterious map. It showed a secret treasure on a faraway island. And before I could let out a squeak of protest, Thea dragged me into her treasure hunt! In no time at all, we'd set sail for the island. It was an adventure I'd never forget....

Daytime Discussions
10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Join us for our newest Daytime Discussion. Socialize and grab a cup of tea, coffee, or hot cocoa before sitting down and reflecting on “The Great Alone” by Kristin Hannah.

Ernt Allbright, a former POW, comes home from the Vietnam war a changed and volatile man.  When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision: he will move his family north, to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.

Thirteen-year-old Leni, a girl coming of age in a tumultuous time, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, dares to hope that a new land will lead to a better future for her family.  She is desperate for a place to belong. Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown. At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers.

In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.  But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own. In the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves.

Pick up your copy at the Circulation Desk after January 27, 2020.  Large print and audiobook available.

Recipe Taster Cookbook Club
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

This month's theme  TBA

About a month before the meeting, cookbooks will be displayed in front of the reference desk.  Pick a recipe, copy it - free of charge - and mark the recipe so there is no duplication!  Then, on the night of the program, bring in your completed recipe to share.  Sounds like fun, right?

While you enjoy each other's creations, you can talk about any problems with, additions to, or helpful hints for making the recipe!
